My Little Look Alikes

Oh hi, remember me? Once upon a time I used to blog here...

Things are a little crazy round these parts at the moment. I haven't wanted to write a post because things aren't going as perfectly as I'd planned. Lincoln is full on. He's adorable and precious and demanding and gorgeous and completely full on. After the easy run we had with Max it's really hit me for six.

Sean suggested I write a post about it (after all isn't that what bloggers do...). But I'm not sure if I can. I'm really struggling at the moment, I have too much on my plate and I'm not enjoying myself. I was totally unprepared for a baby who doesn't settle, cries for hours on end, likes to scream for long periods of time between midnight and five am and has a love/hate relationship with feeding.

Today I've put my shops into holiday mode and plan on spending the next three weeks solely focused on my family. Hopefully that will help make me feel a little more zen :).

In the meantime I thought I would share some happy snaps of my gorgeous little look alikes.  I can not get over how different my boys are, yet how similar they look.



I still have lots to share, Link's birth story, all the DIYs from Max's party and some more Christmasy stuff. Hopefully I will be back with all of that soon :).

  1. Aw, they are so cute! And so sorry you're having a rough go of it! Hopefully the little guy will mellow out soon and let you sleep some more. And thank you for being honest! Having a newborn is tough no matter what, and don't ever feel bad that things aren't perfect. I hope you have a lovely holiday! You're awesome!

  2. He's gorgeous Tamsyn! Sorry to hear you're having a hard time- lucky they're so adorable, because they are soooo much work! I recently held my best friend's newborn and started getting a little clucky, and the snapped out of it when I heard those cries :) I wish you all the best- and have a lovely Christmas with your beautiful family x

    1. I know what you mean! After I had Max I was so keen to get pregnant again quickly, now with Link I have no interest in doing this all over again! Two is just perfect for me :). I hope you have a great Christmas too xx

  3. Hang in there! Take that much needed break and maybe some extra naps! It will be exciting to see if the boys continue to look alike. Have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New Year!
